A microbrewery is coming to Fort Scott. Thank you for your investment! ...

In this historic basement boiler room, we will begin our next adventure in our journey. Fort Scott Kansas hasn't had a brewery since 1884. That is about to change! The Boiler Room Brewhaus will soon be brewing up craft beer and placing Fort Scott on the map of American microbreweries. The first and only microbrewery in SE Kansas. Every brew will have some Black Dogs Farm in it. Honey, Hops, Fruit and some stuff from other local farms. As we get started, please be patient and push us for information on our progress. We hope to start brewing before the new year.
